Drivers fitness to be tested30th December 2008
The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency has outlined proposals for drivers to declare they are medically fit to be on the road.
The idea would be for drivers to declare themselves fit to drive every decade, with the option of submitting themselves to tests against new minimum physical and mental requirements. The standards would be issued by the agency and are likely to cover eyesight and reaction times. It is believed the proposals are contained in consultation due to be outlined by the Department for Transport on ways to improve road safety.
